At Medicine Horse it’s all about horses helping people and people helping horses. It’s about developing relationships with some amazing animals and discovering your best self.
In our work, we constantly witness how horses nurture, inspire and heal a person’s spirit, mind and body. We strive to provide a safe, guided and inclusive environment in which our clients can acquire tools and confidence to learn about themselves and each other.
Through honest interactions, the horse(s) and human facilitators help our clients understand how their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors affect each relationship.
